Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you please attach the pictures?When did these arise?
Has he been rubbing his muzzle before or after these developed?
These look like ruptured pustules, which are commonly associated with allergies. Can you describe how he's scratching his back end?
I can recommend a home treatment approach for the bumps but if they persist or worsen I would urge you to see your vet.First, try a few days of Zyrtec. This should help with both the itching and scabbing. Dosing info here: http://cheyennewest.com/antihistamines-for-dogs-cats/As well, clean these areas twice daily with a moist cloth and a mild soap. You do not need to scrub vigorously but do use circular motions to loosen any debris that might be caked on the bumps.You should begin to see an improvement within just a few days time.
